To preserve and encourage local arts in Gilbert, the Higley Center for the Performing Arts relies heavily on sponsorships and volunteers. Along with the small dedicated staff, sponsors and volunteers help HCPA keep the performance facility and productions running smoothly throughout each season. Support is also essential to the center’s mission to “Grow the Arts in Gilbert.” For those looking to volunteer, sponsor, or are interested in other available support opportunities, contact the Higley Center Manager Robert Zucker,

During the spring 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, Gilbert’s Higley Center for the Performing Arts postponed live ticketed shows scheduled to the fall season, including acts such as The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and the Bellamy Brothers. To provide entertainment virtually during the facility shutdown, the HCPA developed its own local TV channel HCTV to broadcast shows featuring performers, local guests, and hosts. The online streaming broadcasts showcased entertaining piano playing, humor, storytelling, world-renowned vocalist groups, as well as Elvis and Moody Blues tributes, to name a few. The HCTV channel also hosted special event links to Higley Unified School District’s Virtual Graduations for Higley High School and Williams Field High School, both located in Gilbert, AZ.

    We went to see Herb Albert and Lani Hall. What a great performance . This concert was sold out . You couldn’t park in the front, but there was plenty of parking in the back. Getting to the front was easy and when the concert was over it was an easy out.

    This venue is really nice for its vicinity as well as being comfortable with great views from all seats. The sound and lights were not as solid the last time we were there but in the past have been great. We attend this facility for school concerts as well as national artists. Tickets to events

    Great venue, have been here for concerts, graduations, etc. Accessibility is a bit poor and the parking options are limited. The majority of the parking is on the other side of the school and you have to walk through campus to get to the auditorium. Good capacity with solid audio throughout and unobstructed views. Been

    The venue is amazing. Great acoustics in the main auditorium. Only issue I have is there is not nearly enough parking for this size of venue. As a student trying to park in the lot I pay to park in, the visiting audience members take up every spot in the whole school, leaving none for
